An open letter to Jared Padalecki that will probably never be read by him.
When I was 19, my doctor told me that I was going to die.
Now, as a 19 year old, I shouldn’t have gotten news like that. I should have gotten news that I had gotten into the college of my choice, or that I had saved up enough money that I could get my own car.
You might think, wow, that is sad. Now that’s a ‘tragedy’.
But does your opinion change when I tell you that I was told I was going to die because I had suffered from addiction for most of my life? Anorexia to be specific?
There is only one absolute in life: death affects everyone. You will die one day. It’s inventible.
I did not want to die at 19 years old. Without a full life behind me. So I fought. And now I am 21 years old and healthy.
I’ve won my battle for now but that doesn’t mean that i’m not in the middle of a war. A war that I constantly have to fight to win. What you fail to realize is that some people cannot win their war. They will never be able to come home from their battlefield.
What if I grow up and relapse? Does my battle become in vain? Does everything i’ve worked for go to the back burner because my addiction decided to take centre stage again?
You called PSH pathetic for not being able to beat his addiction but I don’t think you understand that you also called everyone who ever had an addiction pathetic. That you undermined all of our pain and our suffering in one word.
A life was lost on February 2nd. A battle against addiction was lost. But, statistically, 560 people lost their battle with addiction on that day too.
And if you ask me: that’s a fucking tragedy.
